Spore Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Computer and Video Games has published another new preview of Will Wright's upcoming god sim, Spore. The game will allow players to climb the evolutionary ladder from single celled organism to master of a sprawling galactic empire.

Impressing other creatures is also based around this parts system. One puny monster walked up to me and sang a little tune, and Spore's UI insisted I attempt to impress him by singing back. Sadly, I had no mouth, so instead I decided that the only song he was going to hear was the melody of my claws squeezing the life from his fluffy little arse.

If you want, you can be a herbivore, gaining friends and avoiding predators, but everyone makes babies. From this dirtiness comes the chance to evolve, adding body parts to grow towards the point of sentience, where you gain the ability to create things. There's a real feeling of life, with each race you create, and possibly make extinct, feeling utterly new and original.

So far the gameplay is somewhat simplistic, but the sheer scale of the world and the number of creations within its gorgeous vistas make up for this. And once you evolve, there's plenty more to do.
